|Other Names||Cofilin-2, Cofilin, muscle isoform, CFL2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP14117a was selected from the N-term region of CFL2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Controls reversibly actin polymerization and depolymerization in a pH-sensitive manner. Its F-actin depolymerization activity is regulated by association with CSPR3 (PubMed:19752190). It has the ability to bind G- and F-actin in a 1:1 ratio of cofilin to actin. It is the major component of intranuclear and cytoplasmic actin rods. Required for muscle maintenance. May play a role during the exchange of alpha-actin forms during the early postnatal remodeling of the sarcomere (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus matrix. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=Colocalizes with CSPR3 in the Z line of sarcomeres.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform CFL2b is expressed predominantly in skeletal muscle and heart. Isoform CFL2a is expressed in various tissues|

This gene encodes an intracellular protein that isinvolved in the regulation of actin-filament dynamics. This proteinis a major component of intranuclear and cytoplasmic actin rods. Itcan bind G- and F-actin in a 1:1 ratio of cofilin to actin, and itreversibly controls actin polymerization and depolymerization in apH-dependent manner. Mutations in this gene cause nemaline myopathytype 7, a form of congenital myopathy. Alternative splicing resultsin multiple transcript variants.
